Just Giving Points Away

Here's a really stupid question.

I just upgraded from FP 98 to 2000. When you put items into a list in 98 you could click the right alignment button to put spaces between the list items so they would look like this:

item 1

item 2

item 3

Instead of:

item 1
item 2
item 3

Is there a way to do this in FP 2000?

You could try adding items between the real items that are just spaces or dashes

Item1
-
Item2
-
Item3

I know in Visual Basic a single dash like this creates a line in menus.  It's worth a shot.

If you check the HTML I'll bet FP2K has put in a <p>...</p> tag!  Drives me nuts!  I usually have to manually take them out...

If the info is in a CELL, then align the contents of the cell using the ALIGN=" " arguement ot the <TD> tag.

Otherwise, resort to NOTEPAD!


p.s. I even tried to take out the <P> and substitute <br> and FP2K just argued with me!

Try doing a shift + enter between each list item instead of just hitting enter in normal view.

The way I initially read your question was that yo did NOT want spaces...  As angelica7108 stated, use the SHIFT+ENTER which places a <BR> tag at the end... that will force the space.

Use the "Show Paragraph Marks" capability... it's susally to the left of the HELP Icon on the tool bar.

Place your cursor on one of the items in the list then do the following:
Right click
Choose List Properties
Style
Format
Paragraph
Line Spacing
Double
Make sure the "spacing" "before" "after" and "word are blank.
This worked for me.

It doesn't work. If there is more then one line the text for each bullet is double spaced.

Thanks for trying, but I am looking for a way to exactly reproduce what FP 98 did.

Okay.  At the end of the line, shift/enter and enter.  It will skip a line and place another bullet or number.
Must be another fluke in FP2000.
